The debut video to be taken from the album 'AC/DC: Iron Man 2' is 'Shoot To Thrill' with Marvel making the video available to view online this week. Iron Man 2 follows on the success of the 2008 film and features stars including Robert Downey Jr, Mickey Rourke, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlet Johansson.
Through a unique collaboration between Marvel Studios and Columbia Records, AC/DC's music will feature in the film. "Jon Favreau's vision and passion for AC/DC's music blend seamlessly into this incredible film" said Steve Barnett, co-chairman of Columbia Records. "The music really underscores the high energy and excitement of the film."
The 'Shoot To Thrill' video uses footage shot in Buenos Aires from AC/DC's Black Ice World tour, the second highest grossing tour of 2009 according to Pollstar, as well as incorporating exclusive footage from the Marvel film.
AC/DC's three night stint at the River Plate Stadium in Argentina was captured using a total of 20 HD cameras, 15 of them REDs. ONSIGHT's Camera Rental and Lab & Post teams worked closely with Serpent Productions, who in turn work with some of the world's best known artists, to ensure this file-based project ran smoothly. The 'Black Ice' concert is currently being offlined by Serpent with the HD Lab providing preparation for post services and data back-up with ONSIGHT's Edit Rental team providing edit systems.
The album 'AC/DC: Iron Man 2' is out on April 19th with the film set for general release in the US in May.
